Animals from History is a Historical Tail for the Young

Animals from History is an e-book written and illustrated by Philadelphia-based artist Christina Hess. These incredibly detailed illustrations (most of which are of actual pets) depict various well-known historical figures as cats and dogs and allows for a fun introduction to history.

While the stories are based on actual historical people and events, Christina Hess does take artistic liberties with the facts in order to allow for a more entertaining read. These stories will span centuries across an animal-centric world and will introduce us to famous historical animals such as Cleopatra, Napoleon Boneapart, Joan of Bark and Kitty Roosevelt.

'Animals from History' is not only a great collection of drawings, but a novel way to introduce children (and those of us who cut class) to history. Stats for Historical Animal Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
